Re: LA County 2-1-1 Service
I attended my first Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors meeting this week and found out about the County's fantastic 2-1-1 phone service. It was on the agenda because they want to help market it better and help get the word out.
Although they will be spending money to promote, they also want to use free ways to promote the service within the community. I feel Neighborhood Councils are a good way to help provide some community outreach and promotion on this. First of all, be aware of the 2-1-1 service and check out the online directory. Besides health and human services for people in need, there is information on arts, culutre, parks and rec, business services. It's like having own agency behind you to cover any and every type of service you can think of. Oh yeah, it is!
So please let everyone know in your meetings and add it to your emails and if you meet people during your community outreach that may benefit by these county services, tell them, "NOW, ONE FREE CALL FOR ALL COUNTY SERVICES. NOT SURE WHO TO CALL? JUST CALL 2-1-1!" And check out the online resource link below. And check me out as I try and navigate a speech that won't get me tossed out of the seat and banned for life.
